A new roof has been installed on the Deering High School Concessions/Team Building at Memorial Stadium. This project was completed on Jan. 20 through a partnership with the city’s Parks and Recreation and Facilities Department and made possible by a generous $12,850 donation from the Roper family and Superior Roofing. DHS Football parents helped facilitate the donation.
“DHS is very grateful to the Ropers and to everyone who helped make the new roof possible,” said DHS Athletic Director Michael Daly. “We will be designing a special plaque to recognize this most generous donation and mount it on the building. We also plan to hold a special thank you ceremony during our first home DHS Football game next fall.”
The donation is expected to be formally acknowledged by the Portland Board of Public Education at its Feb. 7 meeting.
